«Berkeley City Ballet is the best school to learn real ballet. It is the most thorough and consistent ballet program in the East Bay.» BCB Parent
«BCB Pre-Professional students receive such excellent training that they are prepared to audition and enter summer programs and schools such as the San Francisco Ballet School. My son, Mateo Guerrero, attended San Francisco Ballet School for two summers in a row and has now been accepted, on full scholarship, to the school full-time to continue his training. My daughter was also accepted to attend the Lines Summer Intensive twice.» Kimberly Guerrero
«BCB is not just a school of ballet. It is a school of life! Students learn so much about life and who they are on many levels.» BCB Parent
